Evaluation of ocean carbon cycle models with data-based metrics
(American Geophysical Union, 2004-04-02)
New radiocarbon and chlorofluorocarbon-11 data from the World Ocean Circulation Experiment are used to assess a suite of 19 ocean carbon cycle models. We use the distributions and inventories of these tracers as quantitative ...
Future climate change: Modeling and scenarios for the Arctic
Using the Extended Kalman Filter with a Multilayer Quasi-Geostrophic Ocean Model
(American Geophysical Union, 1992-11-15)
The formulation of the extended Kalman filter for a multilayer nonlinear quasi-geostrophic ocean circulation model is discussed. The nonlinearity in the ocean model leads to an approximative equation for error covariance ...
A Possible Feedback Mechanism Involving the Arctic Freshwater, the Arctic Sea Ice, and the North Atlantic Drift
(Science Press, 2004-03-15)
Model studies point to enhanced warming and to increased freshwater fluxes to high northern latitudes in response to global warming. In order to address possible feedbacks in the ice-ocean system in response to such ...
Evaluating Global Ocean Carbon Models: The Importance of Realistic Physics
(American Geophysical Union, 2004-09-15)
A suite of standard ocean hydrographic and circulation metrics are applied to the equilibrium physical solutions from 13 global carbon models participating in phase 2 of the Ocean Carbon-cycle Model Intercomparison Project ...
Heat and Mass Transfer Laws for Turbulent Convective Flows in the Atmosphere over Leads in Ice Covered Oceans, C32A-1123, American Geophysical Union (AGU) Fall Meeting, 5-9 December, San-Francisco, USA
(Nansen Environmental and Remote Sensing Center, 2005)
Patches of open water (cracks, leads and polynias, Figure 1) in theice cover give major contributions to turbulent exchanges of heat, moisture, CO2 and other gases between the atmosphere and Polar oceans. Here, convective ...
Arctic sea ice and climate change - will the sea ice disappear in this century?
(Blackwell Scientific Publications, 2000)
Observing the Ocean from Space: Emerging Capabilities in Europe
(GODAE Project Office and Bureau of Meteorology, Melbourne, 2001-12)
During the first decade of the 21st century Earth observation from satellites will be faced with two major demands: provision of continuity missions and launch of new exploratory missions. This paper addresses European ...
An intercomparison of large-eddy simulations of the stable boundary layer
(Springer Science (former Kluwer Academic Publishers), 2005)
Results are presented from the first intercomparison of Large-eddy simulation (LES) models for the stable boundary layer (SBL), as part of the GABLS (Global Energy and Water Cycle Experiment Atmospheric Boundary Layer ...
Cover ERS-1/2 SAR monitoring of dangerous ice phenomena along the western part of Northern Sea Route
(Taylor & Francis, 1997-08-01)
